Members of the Weinstein & Anastasio, P.C. Visibility Committee chose to honor the memory of
Michele Baum, who served as the firm's marketing director for five years, by participating in the
American Cancer Society's signature fundraising event, Relay for Life. With 100 percent partici-
pation from staff, the team took turns walking the track for a 24-hour period at Hamden's Relay
for Life event.
Team members raised more than $9,500 in their inaugural year of participation. "Not only was
this a tribute to Michele, it was an opportunity to support our community and build on the strength
of our team," said Anastasia Muench, who served as team captain. "It was a feel-good moment
that we were all proud to be a part of."
Weinstein & Anastasio, P.C. was recognized as one of the top three fundraisers supporting the
Hamden event, which raised over $93,000 for cancer research and support. The team has unan-
imously agreed to continue their support of the event in memory of Michele, and plans to host
fundraising events throughout the year.
